Lets go see the sights and ride the horses


How doth the wind blow my fine feathered friend?
Sorry had a Shakespeare moment. So let me think for a second. Jil Sander s/s 11. Well frankly when I was looking at the bergdorf website it seemed much more appealing. I was thinking...jeez I totally love this wacky 60's vibe going on here. However I really wasn't crazy about the cookie monster knits and the tacky shopping bags....bleh. I loved the exploding floral jumpsuits it was quirky and original! I sort of thought the two older ads (sorry I have no idea were they are from) would sort of compliment the jil sander stuff.
Anyway enough of this criticism. Life has been pretty dull in Upstate New York. I've been mildly entertained by the Hole Cd I got for Chranukahis. I'm having issues being inspired by spring when there is a foot of snow on the ground. SOMEBODY PULL ME OUT OF THIS RUT!
Haha

Flower punk

H&M blazer (pretty hot I know) American Eagle Jeans...Wait 1 second did I really say that? I did, unfortunately at my craptactular mall that is the only store that has jeans for some one of my size. Fortunately I pinned on some retro patches.

Oh and the best part is I got Doc Martens and Happy Socks for Christmas! Feeling pretty fly.
So, one other thing I got which was rather interesting was "The Selby" I don't know if you've ever read Todd's blog but it is amazing. There was a picture of Karl in his house in Paris and frankly I was inspired
Look at him...it's Karl!!!
Anyway, this outfit sort of has a neon addam's family vibe going for it. I tried to pose like Morticia on acid. ( with the whole neon color scheme.) I guess the face sort of takes away from the outfit because, when I try to pose angry I look constipated. I simply can't help it.



Sky blue acid bird



The outfit I wore could seriously use any of the items. Especially the miu miu bag

They blew up tinsel town with an army of derby girls


Have you been inspired yet?
It's finally break and I am so happy! I asked for docs for christmas...I REALLY HOPE I CAN GET THEM!!!!! Anyway I have this idea for a club for weird misfit feminists. Or some sort of recognition for them because we don't get enough credit. In other news I wore the outfit in my last post to school today:
Kid in my homeroom:
Hey Roma where do you buy your clothes from?
Me: Um vintage stores...your jealous I know.
KIMH: Well I'm pretty sure you got that skirt off my table.
Me: *death glare*
It was hilarious great way to start the holidays.
I'd like to finish this post with some tagging and care bears on fire.
Brittney has been tagged because frankly she has an awesome blog and likes Missoni just as much as I do

I wish we could all be like the kids in American Graffiti

Gap Dress, worn under as a skirt, Super man shirt I think I got in Target in the men's section. Urban Outfitters Hat. Arche Oxford type shoes.
Alright your probably wondering about the beatles purse. Well guess what...it's like Hermione's purse, it has everything in it:
An Old man
Soup
Vitamins
Andy Samberg
Jane Eyre
Pudding
Gum
a fruit cup
Alexander McQueen lizard pumps
Anna Wintour
and...DOBBY!
Haa sorry about that I totally just had a moment. Anyway, my break hasn't started yet because my teachers are obviously out to get me. Oh and I wrote a Rap about Daria and Andy Samberg. I might have to rap it out during winter break. OOHH YEAH!
I found this on the pop I re-collaged it. muhaha! I love this because it's very retro but also very post classical greek. Dorthy and impressionism is pretty great no?
Oh guess what
I have a major crush on these shoes:
I want them sooo much I wish they were about 200 dollars cheaper but. they're. not. waaah.

That girl thinks she's the queen of the neighborhood

BFrankly I think I would be Bikini Kill's Rebel girl if I was wearing this:
Yes I am sure I would be a rebel girl in these shoes. Oh how I muse on about Rodarte!
Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 Ready-to-WearAlexander McQueen Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Alexander McQueen, well, honestly Sarah will be my new best friend. Her designs sort of look like little Austrian dolls and Celtic fairies! Some of it was a bit...boring. I wasn't impressed with the whole Ring Master Fighter Pilot.

Hussien Chalayn.....I loved the beginning it was my creepy little fantasy. The end I was bored by hooray for a usual sundress!


I swear I will be the Queen of the Neighborhood! This video reminds me of Rei and her Riot Grrl attitude.

Girl Scout Safari






Hey dudes,
sorry for my random absence. I went skiing yesterday and the rest of the week i was loaded with homework. Anyway the outfit was inspired by the book derby girl, muse, and rodarte or should i say "Radarte" sorry that was awful. One of my besties drew the picture. Sorry for the bad photography skills. Anyway, the pic is of Hussein Chalyan coffee table skirt.
I am in this total riot grrl mood lately, due to the fact that Tavi's feminist sweater isn't actually for sale, i'm making a sweatshirt that says "RIOT GRRL!" Oh yeah get on my level. I'm tagging Zarna from zarna's runway. She is a super cool "It Girl." from nashville. She has a cool bollywood meets the modern south vibe.

Picture found on questionably weird site:

Teenage Scream


I finally got to post my outfit with my epic win tulle skirt I got in Manhattan! I was like buzzing when I saw it because:
a. Tulle is my favourite material
b. tulle is better than fruit cups
c. It's vintage
I got it at this nifty store called "The Family Jewels Vintage" So exciting!
This outfit was inspired by a lot of things actually





I love Courtney love but I also get mad at her like these shoes.
'Natalie
Rodarte did the costume! Oh my gosh. Dude.
Black Swan


Oh, I have to tell you about my expirence about trying to get a lanvin for H&M dress:
So I went into the store all excited and I go up to the clerk.
Me:"Do you carry the Lanvin For H&M stuff here?"
Cool Sales Clerk:"No we just sold out, sorry. There's a new store opening in Las Vegas."
Me:... ( What I was really thinking was yes: I am going to fly to vegas on my unicorn to meet Sabrina the Teenage Witch.)
I was so mad!
Anyway. Thank you guys for all of the awesome comments. Especially you Marcus
Bye from me, sabrina, and my unicorn!

Some People see things others don't

Feeling grunge-y makes me feel like listening to bikini kill. I got the teen vogue handbook from my aunt for Hanukkah. It's actually pretty cool they have an interview with the mulleavy sisters from Rodarte. They also interviewed jack mccollough and lazaro hernandez from Proenza Schouler. See guys Teen Vogue is pretty awesome

Quiet Rose the Nymphs are sleeping

This editorial is creepy but really cool. I kinda like the whole lady gaga meets peter pan thing going on here.I love the miu miu dress in the second to last picture! There was a great use of prada in this editorial! Thanksgiving in New York was cool I went to a vintage store and bought a crinoline skirt that makes me feel like a victorian fairy. My camera battery died so I'll put it up next post. Yipee. I'm tagging Aphrodite for her epic view on nostalgia and highschool. Oh I found this really cool book by this Israeli feminist on Judaism and riot grrl.

The Elite group of under 16 bloggers

So Bella is super cool,
I immediately got hooked on her blog because:.
a. She is the only other non Tavi under 16 blogger I know. I'm 14 so that makes 3 of us
bso that made me hooked
c. I find her dry humor very fun to read!
I interviewed her the other day and she had a lot to say:
How did you get into fashion?
Well, I've always been interested in fashion. I can't say that I'm knowledgeable when it comes to materials and designer's names, but I'm learning. I found out about fashion blogging through Teen Vogue. Tavi was being featured. I had never heard about her. Soon I was reading Style Rookie everyday and thinking of possible blog titles.
U
Me: What things inspire your posts?
Bella: Photographs, other bloggers, and collections. Many things. Items as simple as old-fashioned Coca-Cola bottles inspire me.

Me: Who is your favorite designer?
Bella: I have many favorites: Alexander McQueen, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, John Galliano, Rei Kawakubo, Alber Elbaz, Karl Lagerfeld, and Tao Kurihara.

What do you dislike about Aberzombies?
Their lack of individuality. They all dress the same, and they speak the same.

Me: At your school how do people respond to your fashion obsession?
Bella: I'm homeschooled now, but when I went to school people would ask dumb questions. "Why are you wearing a tutu?" The douche 'popular' guys would snicker and point at me but I smiled through it. The fact that they didn't like my outfit meant that I was different.

Me: Who is your favorite person in the industry?
I love Anna Dello Russo, Anna Wintour, John Galliano, and Freja Beha Erichsen. They all have quirks, but they all seem so cool. I'm convinced that Anna Wintour is a superhero.

Me: What are your favorite blogs?

Me: If you could wear anything in the world what would you wear?

Yup that was pretty cool huh? I found an editorial from Nippon Vogue that I am using next post. Have a nice thanksgiving ( I' m going up to Manhattan to see family and go shopping.)
The picture is of Bella which I found on her blog. I

Kaboom!

So guess what.....I AM A SUPER STAR sorry really hyper for three reasons:




Sorry bout the video guys youtube wasn't working today blaarg.
But anyway so this video is amazing because:
a: it's about pink robots
b: that teddy bear is seriously awesome
c: that girl totally pulled a kawakubo. She totally looks like Rei maybe they're twins or third cousins
Anyway. the first picture is from hero magazine I found via Pop World. Hero is pretty cool its by these super star gay guys who go around looking for awesome people who should be models
The third one is from pop also! She looks like a mix between lady gaga and marc jacobs last season.
I would totally die my hair that color. But there is a lot of things I would do, like write stuff on my head with sharpie.
I have the sudden urge to eat pop rocks so I will.
Bye!

Depressed Fairy Godmothers



Okay so I've finally posted this picture. So i wore this last week but whatevs. Anyway, so I walk into my home room to the usual crowd of girls yapping away about their intense 9th grade relationships. I sit down listening to the Ramones while acting all hyper when the girl behind me says something to me.
"Are you like into fashion?"
"Uhh yeah."
"Do you like Betsey Johnson."
"..." Alright I'll say it betsey is like the crazy sister or aunt I never had she completes me okay? She seriously is just amazing and hilarious. Anyways so this was seriously my favorite outfit ever. You can't really see it but my headband has a "Slandwhich" jelly card on it. Also my belt is a tape measure with a belt buckle talking about Alexander McQ being my hero.
I have one other important thing to tell y'all. So Tavi ( god I'm pretty sure I don't have to explain who she is) is creating a magazine for us wacko wallflower children. I submitted something for it. Yay! Support it because our voices should be heard!
In other news I have a crush on a pair of proenza schouler pants. They came to me in a dream and suddenly I was running around in the best mood ever. Oh they are wonderful but I am envious of them so!
Roma+ Proenza Schouler Pants=love

Space cadets and tin houses



I've been dying to use that video! I think the VMAs are a scam because this should have won. As they said in SNL being awarded a vma is like having a worlds best grandma mug and you say that your grandma is better. Anyway. I feel slightly awesome because this post makes me feel all inspired. I really like the Pucci stuff in the first two pics I sort of think that Alexander McQueen sort of carried the torch in creating space wear. However his is for the other side. His is for weird aliens like Lady GaGa, misfits, and for Vogue Nippon and their crazy editors who I love like crazy. Any way, school was great today because somebody totally played the balmain card with neon leggings and a sparkly leather coat. I love balmain but it sort of hurts your eyes to look at. Its like you give a four year old a glue gun and some sparkles and tell them to go to town. Next post I am going to put up some pics of the outfit I wore a couple days ago because people were so hilarious about so I was saving it for later. Shit!I just went on a tangent. Whatevs
Going Home!
